The Women's Health Initiative Study hoped to show decreases in:
  • breast cancer
  • stroke
  • pulmonary embolism
  • colorectal cancer
  • endometrial cancer
  • hip fracture
  • death due to any cause
The actual outcome results were shocking:
  • 29 percent increase in coronary heart disease
  • 41 percent increase in strokes
  • 22 percent increase in cardiovascular disease
  • 2,100 percent (yes, this is correct) increase in pulmonary embolism—lung blood clots
  • 26 percent increase in breast cancer
So much for synthetic hormones! These statistics alone should convince you right away of the negative effects of these so-called synthetic hormones.

Those of us who were on the original birth control pills for any length of time were actually on synthetic hormones- strong synthetic hormones. Any wonder why women of our generation are under siege from an epidemic of breast and ovarian cancers? There is a link, and you'll learn more about it in this book.
